I'm More Clever Than A Girl Like Her...
* UPDATED LINK*
One of the best things about having your own blog is that you can post anything you like!
I LOVE being able to share my favorite songs and introduce people to songs that didn't find the audience that they deserved sometimes.
This is one of those songs.
Most of you have heard of Vanessa Carlton before. She's done the vocals on a bunch of songs over the past few years. She is mostly known for her debut single 'Ordinary Day' and for her duet with the Counting Crows on 'Big Yellow Taxi.'
But my all time favorite song for her is probably the one that got her dropped from her record label. 'White Houses' was the first single from her second album 'Harmonium' in 2004. The record was a commercial failure and it was the only single from the album before she parted ways with the record company.
Watching her perform this song live with just her playing piano and singing is amazing. it's dissapointing that a song this good didn't acheive any real success. Although the song did go Number 1 in Taiwan!
